Münster’s main shopping street is famous for its gabled houses and arcades – relicts of the city’s medieval history. In the gothic town hall the Peace of Westphalia was signed, ending the Thirty Year’s War in 1648.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

Numerous churches mark the cityscape of Münster, but St. Paul’s Cathedral is definitely the most prominent: With its size and copper roof the cathedral is an eye-catcher in the heart of the old town. On Wednesdays and Saturdays the square is bustling due to the farmer’s market.

As a university city, Münster is vibrant after sunset: In the Kuhviertel, Münster’s bar district, visitors can enjoy pubs and traditional Westphalian restaurants. Bringing together art, culture, restaurants and clubs, Münster’s port is another rising star.
